Printable Pinwheel

Posted by  ·  May 27, 2011  ·  Last Updated: April 30, 2016

Here is a quick and easy printable that makes a great decoration for any Memorial Day or Fourth of July celebrations you might be having!

The container is a cardboard Uncle Sam hat from the party store filled with hydrangeas and patriotic pinwheels. A large coffee can painted with a patriotic design would also work.

Large Patriotic Pinwheel

Medium Patriotic Pinwheel

Small Patriotic Pinwheels

Print template on card-stock, cut out, fold tips to center and fasten with a long pin through black dots. The pinwheels can be attached to a pencil by pushing the pin into the pencil eraser. I needed a longer stick so I placed a cap pencil eraser on a 5/16″ dowel rod that I painted blue. I found they really spin well if you add a pony bead for spacing. A star cut out would be a nice touch on the front where the pin is placed.
